NOW TV Nickelodeon Swap Shop

You might have wondered what is this creature, covered in spots. In case you didn't guess, it is Gaston the ladybird from Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, one of my younger son's favourite TV shows. It might look like a crazy hat, but it was meant to be Gaston.

Are you children big fans of Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, Thomas the tank engine and other shows?

Have you heard of NOW TV Nickelodeon Swap Shop? It runs from the 29th of July until the 17th of August.

"NOW TV is thrilled to announce two exciting new additions to its children’s entertainment offering. Viewers can now watch Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. at any time, without a contract via the Entertainment Month Pass.

To celebrate, NOW TV is launching the NOW TV Nickelodeon Swap Shop. The social campaign is asking  families to get creative in return for a free  Nickelodeon digital activity pack crammed full of fun to keep children entertained this summer.

Taking part is simple, all parents have to do is follow NOW TV on Twitter or Facebook. Over the next two weeks the NOW TV Nickelodeon Swap Shop will post characters from some of Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.'s most-loved shows such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom and Thomas and Friends.

Then it is over to the kids to get creative by drawing, painting or doodling their recreation of their favourite Nickelodeon characters. Mums and dads can then tweet a picture of their kids’ artwork with the hashtag #NickelodeonNOWTV or respond to the post on the NOW TV Facebook page to receive their free digital activity pack.

Not only will every submission receive a digital activity pack but they will also be entered into a competition to win a Nickelodeon goody bag and a NOW TV Entertainment Month Pass - the perfect prize for kids to come home to after a long summer’s day! Five expert judges will pick the winners by selecting their 10 favourite entries each, which will be showcased on the NOW TV Facebook page for everyone to see."

Disclosure: we received a pack of Crayola crayons and a soft toy to help spread the word.
